Remarkable Rocks

At the southwest corner of Kangaroo Island, on the coast and within the bounds of Flinders Chase National Park, a granite dome rises precipitously from the sea.

The huge boulders are—well, let me show you instead of telling you. Here are a few images from this impressive cluster of lichen-stained granite rocks:
